NDIS Smart Watch & Personal Alarms

Your 4GX SureSafe Personal Alarm using NDIS

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a national support program that provides targeted support and better coordination and access to services for people living with a disability. This national approach means that regardless of what kind of disability you have or where you live, you will have equal access to support and services that will help you reach your individual goals.

At Sure Safe, our goal is to provide high-quality, 4GX personal alert alarms to everyone, regardless of their health condition or disability, and the NDIS helps us do this. Our products fall under the NDIS’s Assistive Technology or Consumables funding, allowing you to get additional support no matter what disability you have.

If your goals involve INDEPENDENCE, SAFETY OR SOCIAL INCLUSION, then our government-funded smart watch alarms will help you achieve those goals. And with NDIS support, getting reliable personal alarm devices is now easier than ever!

Call our friendly staff on 1300 739 991 to find out how we can help regarding personal alarms for the disabled, including an NDIS funded smart watch or SOS Watch; if you are a support coordinator or support provider, please send us an email or give us a call. Please ask about our NDIS smartwatch; we can provide more information on how our NDIS alarm can help your participants reach their individual goals.

Increased Safety through a Government Funded Personal Alarm

Being elderly or disabled means that personal safety is important, and a personal alarm can be a crucial element in ensuring that safety. However, if funds are limited, a personal alarm may be unaffordable and so acquisition may not be possible. This is where government-funded schemes can help.

There are several schemes available, and each one has its own assessment criteria and funding rules. It’s important you understand what is required and available in order to benefit from government funding.

Criteria and Rules for each Personal Alarm Rebate Scheme

To be eligible for government funding for a fall watch through NDIS or another organisation, you must:

  • be aged 65 years or over or have a recognised disability
  • be 60 years old or older if from an economically damaged background
  • live in your own home or with a carer
  • undertake a formal assessment of your needs for certain funding
  • pass a means test in certain cases.

These criteria are intended to channel support where it is most needed. The various schemes that may be considered include:

  • Commonwealth Health Support Programme (CHSP) that promotes independent living by providing entry-level support
  • Home Care Packages (HCP) provides comprehensive packages that are more tailored to meet specific care needs
  • National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding for those who have significant disabilities
  • Veterans’ Access has several government initiatives that recognise the needs of veterans.

Of these schemes, the NDIS is the most common way to obtain an NDIS smart watch or other medical device at no cost. However, to obtain funding for an NDIS personal alarm, you need to follow a set process:

  1. Contact an approved organisation so your needs can be assessed and a suitable programme identified. This may include a means test to determine your financial eligibility.
  2. If approved, choose a supplier that is recognised by the appropriate organisation (typically NDIS).
  3. Submit your application for funding, which your supplier should be able to help with to ensure it is completed properly.
  4. Receive your personal alarm and become familiar with its use.

Helping you Obtain a Funded Alarm

To acquire an alarm with NDIS funding, you will need to ensure your existing NDIS plan has personal alarms included, either under core supports or in your consumables budget. We can help you do that and also ensure your application shows that your chosen personal alarm aligns with the NDIS funding categories and the NDIS plan’s goals.

We are an NDIS-approved supplier and can help you gain the funding you need. The reason we have approval is that we supply high-quality personal alarms that are durable, easy to use, water-resistant, reliable with long battery life and have a host of useful features.

Safety is a high priority and a fully funded personal alarm will play a significant part in that. We understand the NDIS funding process and can help you obtain the necessary funding as well as the personal alarm you need. So get in touch today to start the process.
